Abstract

We demonstrate two high-speed electro-optic devices: an integrated lens/scanner and a variable radius collimating lens stack fabricated on a single crystal of Z-cut LiTaO3. The lens and scanner components consist of lithographically defined domain-inverted regions extending through the thickness of the crystal. A lens power of 0.233 cm-1 kV-1, a deflection angle of 12.68 mrad kV-1, and a scan rate of 225 kHz at 375 V were observed. The collimating lens stack is theoretically capable of collimating the output from 2-10 micron diameter channel waveguides.
